About Crawley

Crawley is a place that just keeps getting better. A major economic hub, and home to key organisations including Gatwick Airport, it continues to offer sustained growth, high quality employment opportunities and a great quality of life.

Planned to reflect the green and wooden nature of the beautiful countryside that surrounds the town, Crawley offers a particularly pleasant environment in which to live and work. Read more about Crawley’s New Town History.

The town is divided into a series of residential neighbourhoods around the town centre, each with its own schools, shops and community facilities.

Crawley has 111,400 residents and is the largest inland town in West Sussex. It is home to a host of multi-national businesses who benefit from excellent air, rail and road links.
